    This is an interesting mix of elements of other bits of glass that I have seen: the carbon in the pontil scar is something I have seen in other Victorian Czech glass, the rim crimp and lobing look like a number of companies we all collect between us, the feet are straight from any number of bowls or baskets.
    Initially I wondered if it could be British, as it seems that the design cross-pollination was not only between Czech manufacturers but Europe-wide, but I have now settled on Bohemian: maker unknown (although Kralik was my first thought, I have to be careful that my own cognitive biases don't creep in too much).
    12.5cm high x 13.5cm diameter.

      I love this décor, particularly in green, a favourite colour of mine.

      Whilst recognising my own bias, my first thought was Welz. Welz made this décor in pink and green, with and without mica. Welz also used 'pointy leaves' as feet.

      Kralik did do a rim with four sets of spaced out crimps. However Kralik used a crimping tool which left three raised dots/hollows, on each crimp. At least, that is,
      on my Kralik Mother of Pearl bowl, which has horizontal green threading and just such a crimped rim!

      rare indeed I searched in Murano glass but did not find anything similar

      Thanks, Peggy, I thought you might like this one. I think you have posted a similarly swirled Welz vase - you are right that this doesn't have spots in the crimp... Unknown but with interesting corollaries for me at the moment.

      I thought of Welz first, too - that's probably because of this post:

      Looking forward to the corolleries, Ian.

      Ian, the green striping and the 'm' crimp immediately brought Welz to my mind as well...

      No idea, but it is Beautiful.

      I do not know why I think Victorian....?? but that is most likely Left Field ?

      Something to do with "twerking" or t'working as they call it in Yorkshire?
